I am on the hunt for healthier meal options and a lazy day actually led to this delicious new dish that is now on my list of favorites. 

I had a ton of ingredients left over in the fridge and cupboards but none of them really “went together” I didn’t have enough ingredients to make a sauce and I wasn’t sure what meal I was going to be able to cook for dinner that night.

I literally started chopping and throwing things together and realised around halfway through that if I added some garlic and seasonings it would actually be a great meal that could stand on it’s own! – and I was right!

This simple dish is a clean eating meal that is easy to make, delicious and not too messy either so there is minimal clean-up (which is a bonus in this house!)


*Serves 1 Dinner or 2 Lunches*

  • 100g Chicken – chopped
  • 3 Medium Cloves Garlic – finely chopped
  • 125g Asparagus Tips – chop
  • 150g Rice Noodles


1.Chop the chicken along with one chopped clove of garlic and lightly fry on a medium heat until cooked around the outside.

2. Next, chop the asparagus tips and add them to the chicken along with the rest of the chopped garlic. Simmer for 5 minutes.

3. Add the rice noodles, stir to break them apart and make sure they are coated in the juices. Cook for a further 5 minutes making sure that the chicken is cooked all the way through and serve.

This meal also makes a great meal prep option and you can easily scale up or down to make larger portions. One thing I will note is that don’t double the amount of garlic, take it up by halves otherwise, it is too much for the meal. For example, when doubling this recipe, use 4-5 cloves of garlic not 6 (the rest doubles as usual)

  5. We love any meal that has asparagus. This one with the noodles looks amazing! I never would have thought to add it in.

  7. Rice noodles are my favorite to cook! They don’t take any time at all and they are so easy to flavor with different recipe varieties. This recipe looks really healthy and something that would be easy to do on a weeknight.

  8. I love asparagus, it is one of those forgotten vegetables sometimes. This looks amazing and I can’t wait to try it!

  9. This looks good! A wholesome and clean recipe that’s still hearty, is hard to find. But it could easily be a Fall staple in my house.

    • you should definitely give it a try! you can get rice noodles at the supermarket they are just a healthier alternative (and they last a bit longer in the cupboard) than egg noodles 🙂 I use Amoy ones but there are own brand.
